Ah DigiTimes, what would a morning be without your rumors sourced from within Taiwan's component suppliers? Today's tattle has Acer launching its A1, C1/E1, F1, and L1 smartphones "at the end of September and in the fourth quarter" -- that a four-month spread. Of these, the F1 running WinMo 6.5 (pi...

It's unsourced, but we're hearing today that Acer's first Android phone will be called the A1 and arrive in September. That's at least the word according to the Phillipine BusinessMirror, and it lines up nicely with our peek inside Acer's secret roadmap diary at MWC. The touchscreen A1 will appar...

Seriously, you just can't find a PMP that's any manlier than this. For starters, the phrase "man" is used three times in the product name (Newman ManMan A1), and secondly, it's fluorescent pink in color. Clearly, Newman is aiming at those with a soft spot in their hearts for the previous generation...

Audi confirmed its pure electric automobile plans earlier this month, and now the automaker's back with yet another green vehicle based on its A1 hybrid concept. In hybrid mode the five door "sportback" (sporty!) will go from 0-62 MPH in 7.9 seconds, reach a top speed of 124 MPH and squeeze up to 7...

With an electric MINI Cooper just around the bend, a Twin Drive hybrid Volkswagen landing in 2010 and Chevrolet's Volt rolling into showrooms in a matter of months, Audi's ten-year plan is looking a little awkward. Though we've yet to hear that it's actually speeding things up, Peter Schwarzenbauer...

Finally someone has created the perfect lovechild of a laptop and desktop PC. Enter the LLUON A1, a buttery combo that looks as if someone suction-cupped a LCD display to the top of an Eee PC.

China's Wistar has tossed yet another entry into the flood of PMPs coming out of the country these days, with its new A1 model seemingly doing little to distinguish itself but packing some decent specs all the same. This one keeps things fairly small with a 3-inch, 16:9 display, along with support...

Tired of bulky media players? Hate having to lug around your iPod Nano? Well, welcome to the Thomson A1, a tiny PMP that the company claims is the "world's smallest," (which of course we recommend you take with multiple grains of salt). Truth be told, it is rather petite, clocking in at just 3-inch...

While some may have balked at Sony taking an early exit from the PDP market, LG is becoming the fourth major player to reevaluate its investment in plasma after Philips was caught claiming that LCD TVs would likely shape its strategy and Hitachi began to look intently overseas for buyers.
